El chupacabra tomó mis pantalones

victory is mine
I just made the perfect classic gin martini.

You're gonna need a digital scale, though. Man, I watch WAY too much Alton Brown.

In a cocktail shaker with ice combine
63 grams (or cc's, since we're measuring liquid. assume 1:1 ratio for water to booze for this drink) of gin
9 grams of extra dry vermouth
13 grams of Stirrings™ Blood Orange Bitters

Shake until shaker frosts, pour into a chilled glass.

Quite nice. Especially with tales of Old Hollywood on the DVD player.

I'm gonna stick with the simple gin + tonic + ice + lime.

Bombay Sapphire, if I can.


Ever tried a Lime Rickey? It's basically a gin and tonic only with more lime juice and club soda (and no tonic). Quite refreshing. Oddly enough, adding a little crushed fresh rosemary to the gin makes it even better. Trust me.

I've heard that before, actually. I've also heard rosemary is good in fresh squeezed lemonade.
